In the majority of hospitalised patients with hyponatraemia, syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion (SIADH) is the primary cause.

J Pediatr Endocrinol Metab 2010 Jan-Feb;23(1-2):197-201

Department of Pediatrics, Lo-Tung St. Mary's Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan.

Here we report a 14 year-old girl who, after 8 years of GH replacement and subsequent treatment for subclinical secondary hypothyroidism, presented with confusion and disorientation due to severe hyponatremia. When her pituitary axis was re-assessed, she was diagnosed as having ACTH deficiency associated with multiple pituitary hormone deficiencies (MPHD) (including GH, FSH, LH, and subclinical TSH deficiencies).
